8. My first question would be:
Are the other cable networks experiencing a similar decline?

I would love to think that the sheeple are starting to actually think critically and are rejecting Fox for its propaganda, but it seems more likely that numbers that peaked before a presidential election might naturally decline as people turned to other interests.

If somebody can show that the rest of the cable "news" errr.. infotainment/scare channels were experiencing a less severe dropoff I might be inclined to believe it, but I hopld little faith that our Bush loving, magnectic bow bumpersticker loving, head in the sand countrymen are actually changing their attitudes in droves.

Just call me eeeyore.
